A good source and comprehensive list for information about the companies in relation to
Human Rights.

Just out of curiosity, I looked up Nestle's and it had a + 10 out of a 100 meaning that it is NOT
a very good company in dealing with Human Rights.

I quit buying Nestlé chocolates many years ago because of their policies and dealings with
workers in various countries around the world. The list of other Nestlé products I don' buy mainly
as they are deemed as junk products.

Worth a serious look. Recommended.

Ty, Nancy.

Noted. Good buying guide. I wouldn't want to spend my gay dollars on those corporations who discriminate anyone!

I used to work for a place (now gone) that was a reasonably well known and large in the financial area. They were always highly rated by the HRC but being an employee I saw the true side that they didn't want the public to see. All of the gay people I knew were heavily closeted as they were afraid of their bosses. I was not flaming but simply out. I saw several cases of rather simple discrimination. No gay people (at least in our department of 500+) people were ever considered for supervisory promotion. There were several attempts by management to out any gay people. The gay people stayed hidden as they did not want to get known and fired. Management also gave away names of people who were gay to head hunters so that they would be tempted to leave.
I got this from a headhunter who I knew and he told me how it worked.
One time most of the gay people (at least who management thought might be gay) were sent an email asking for a meeting. No one showed up as they knew it was a trap.
I am happy that I left the place and the business first got spun off to another company who were then bought up by another company and then outsourced to India. It was the worst company I had ever worked for between shouting matches in the hallways between VP's and their stabbing you in the back while you weren't in the room and their generally mean attitude towards gay people (and others they did not like for whatever reason) it was a relief to be out of the hostile work environment.
SO I don't go by the HRC recommendations.
